Three generations of women. The Italian-Australian experience. A tale of Sydney. A much-loved modern classic novel, a ground-breaking film, and now on stage at Belvoir, a simply great night out. 

Melina Marchetta’s beloved novel of migration is brought to the stage opening at Belvoir for its Sydney premiere season from 1st October to 6th November. 

It’s the last year of school, and 17-year-old Josephine Alibrandi can’t wait for her future to begin. If only she can get past the world of her Nonna, holding on to the values of the old country; and the world of her Mum, full of care and secrets. It’s time to take her place in the real world, beyond her family, beyond being an Alibrandi. 

But this is the year Josie gets to know her father. This is the year she falls in love. And this is the year she uncovers the truth – and finds the Alibrandi she has been searching for. 

The much-loved story that defined a generation, which spoke truth to the trials of migration and systemic racism in Australia, is now taken from the page to the Belvoir stage in its home city, in this unmissable rendering of a classic Sydney story.
